Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Topeka Home02/04/2016 It’s safe to say that even with the weird weather recently, you’ve had plenty of winter. As we keep trying to put our finger on what’s going to happen next with the temperature, it’s important to make certain that you’ve had furnace service done when the weather finally begins being cold nonstop. You may also want to think through adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a few key things to remember when doing your research: Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s crucial to have a system that is the right size for your home. You will typically see a number that will tell you the gallons per day that a specific humidifier can give you, so you’ll want to be sure that number meets your home’s needs. You can determine that number by multiplying your home’s total square footage by the height of your ceiling. Our experts also take in to account how tightly sealed and insulated your home is, as those factors can impact the product best suited for your home. Cost – this might be evident, but consider more than just the expense of the humidifier. You’ll want to think about the operating cost as well as any maintenance costs that come with your new humidifier. As it is with heating and cooling equipment, there are varying degrees of efficiency that you can pick from, so make sure you’re going with the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs. At Custom Sheetmetal & Roofing, Inc., we aim to provide the ideal solutions for our customers, which in the case of humidifiers is a whole-home humidifier. The reason we stand by whole-home humidifiers is because they produce effective and consistent results throughout your entire home. Plus, it’s integrated into your existing system, making the decision easy. While each scenario is different, there are a host of factors that decide which humidifier is right for you and your home.
